Welcome to the Real Real-Time


The 6G-Health project combines the integration of sensors, mobile communication, and computational power through 6G, thus creating new possibilities for medical care through networking and efficiency. The project's focus lies in developing secure and low-latency data communication for clinical IT services.

Currently, medicine and medical technology are characterized by isolated systems. The 6G-Health project (“Holistic Development of Powerful 6G Networking for Distributed Medical Systems”) aims to enable a connected and efficient healthcare system. To achieve this, we are establishing together with our project partners the foundations and requirements for 6G-based medical applications, with the intention of contributing our results to the international 6G standardization.
The primary focus is on efficient and secure data transmission and utilization through innovative sensor technology, artificial intelligence, and security concepts. Within our project, we concentrate on three research areas: Patients, Practitioners, and Processes.
In the Patients area, we are researching and developing novel monitoring methods that integrate innovative sensor technology into 6G systems. Additionally, we are devising methods for energy-efficient and autonomous preprocessing of sensor data.
For Practitioners, we aim to enable new forms of collaborative work, such as multiple access approaches and decision-making concepts based on augmented reality applications.
In the Processes domain, we strive for application-centric networking of medical devices and work towards realizing communication infrastructures for future “Smart Hospitals.” To achieve this, we are developing concrete technology components for 6G-based connected medical systems, expanding the existing sensor technology with 6G technology components.
At SML, our role involves the development of IT/network solutions for secure and low-latency data communication for clinical IT services, particularly for mobile devices. Our focus is on the network and computing infrastructure to ensure reliable and trustworthy communication.
